I can't believe it's the last Saturday in January already, which means my two months as a guest designer with the challenge team at ODBD is over (sniff, sniff)! I've been so blessed by getting to chat with these uber talented and fine Christian ladies! I consider them friends and hope to keep in touch with them via blog land and future challenges! Thanks again, Chris, Kelley and the team for inviting me! So, enough of the chit chat and on to my card and some challenge details!
The team challenges you t0 a Love Recipe- Use items that remind you of Valentine’s including the word love, hearts, lace and the colors red, white, pink and white, or both (must be more than minimal..make these colors the main colors)
To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15
gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Friday, February 3rd at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on or will they qualify for prizes.

I didn't use actual lace, but did choose a lacy heart die and the embossed BG also gives a lacy feel to the card. My card is also for the Viva la Verve Challenge on SCS where Teresa Kline has created a fabulous sketch layout! It also qualifies for the Technique Lover's Challenge on SCS where Judy has introduced a fabulous faux porcelain technique that I will definitely be using over and over again! I brayered Blushing Bride ink over my EF...a 5x7 Cuttlebug folder entitled "Kassie's Brocade". You'll want to click on the link to get more details for this look! I used a square Nestie to emboss the white panel...a small yet elegant detail that I love! The sentiment is from ODBD's Special Blend set - perfect to convey your love to a friend! The heart is the largest of 2 dies in a set by Cheery Lynn Designs - "Pair of Hearts". ODBD now carries some of the more popular Cheery Lynn Designs, so check it out HERE and do some shopping!
There are more fabulous samples to inspire you, so be sure and visit these ladies and leave them some love!
